Longmire TV graphic

Sheriff Walt Longmire had already rounded up a sizable posse of devoted readers when the A&E television series Longmire, starring Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Katee Sackoff, sent the Wyoming lawman’s popularity skyrocketing. Now, with three consecutive New York Times bestsellers to his name, the second season of Longmire reaching an average of 5.4 million viewers per episode, and season three currently being filmed, author Craig Johnson is reaching a fan base that is both fiercely loyal and ever growing.

Any Other Name Book Cover

In Any Other Name, the next book in the Longmire Mystery series, Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life. With the clock ticking on the birth of his first grandchild, Walt learns that the by-the-book detective might have suppressed evidence concerning three missing women. Digging deeper, Walt uncovers an incriminating secret so dark that it threatens to claim other lives even before the sheriff can serve justice - Wyoming style.

 Deborah Rodriguez

Deborah is the bestselling author of Kabul Beauty School and Margarita Wednesdays is the continuation of her incredible story.

Margarita Wednesdays Book CoverIn answer to the question of what happened following her New York Times bestseller Kabul Beauty School, Deborah Rodriquez is back with a new memoir, Margarita Wednesdays.

Irreverent, insightful, and blatantly honest, Deborah takes us along on her inspiring journey of self-discovery and renewal after she is forced to flee Afghanistan in 2007. She first lands in California, where she feels like a misfit teetering on the brink of sanity. Where was that fearless redhead who stared danger in the face back in Kabul?

After being advised to commune with glowworms and sit in contemplation for one year, Rodriguez finally packs her life and her cat into her Mini Cooper and moves to a seaside town in Mexico. Despite having no plan, no friends, and no Spanish, a determined Rodriguez soon finds herself swept up in a world where the music never stops and a new life can begin. Her adventures and misadventures among the expats and locals help lead the way to new love, new family, and a new sense of herself.

In the magic of Mexico, she finds the hairdresser within, and builds the life she never knew was possible—a life on her own terms.
